Search for products and companies certified for food safety by Intertek
The increased demand for food safety has resulted in a number of standards being developed in different countries. Additionally, organizations in the food sector often use their own codes to audit their suppliers. The sheer number of standards, and the cost involved in conforming to all of them, can make it nearly impossible to keep up with the different requirements in the global food market… unless you have a partner like Intertek to help you through the requirements and gain compliance.

Any organization in the food chain can meet the key requirements of various global standards by implementing a Food Safety Management System in compliance with ISO 22000.
British Retail Consortium (BRC) Food Standard
The BRC standard helps manufacturers to establish a system to assist in the avoidance of product failure and successfully meet a number of required elements for a "due diligence" defense.
International Food Standard (IFS)
The IFS standard has been designed to be a harmonized method of monitoring the quality level of retailer-branded food products. The standard can apply to organizations at any step in the food processing chain after agricultural production.
The GlobalGAP standard covers agricultural production up until the point that the product leaves the farm. It helps an organization to minimize the environmental impact of its farming operations, optimize the use of inputs, and ensure the health and safety of its workers.
